Looking for length, definition and volume in just one mascara?
  • Twist up the Volume mascara - Black
  • 1 brush creates 2 results: defined length + oversized volume
  • 1 transformable brush. 2 results: DEFINED LENGTH + OVERSIZED VOLUME
  • Use position 1 to lengthen and separate lashes and position 2 to volumise and intensify lashes

My thoughts
If you remember, I have mentioned it in my favorites of 2013. At first, I didn’t like it that much. The formula was a bit wet and I just did not enjoy using it. However with time, the formula got better and slightly thicker and from there on, I love using it every single day.

If you look at the wand, you’d notice that while you twist the white handle from position 1 to 2, the brush squeezes and gets shorter. So when it is set on position 1, the brush looks longer and the bristles appear to be separated. On position 2, the bristles become close together which collects more product hence giving you that thickening effect. I am not a fan of the second position since it clumps my lashes together but I’ve got to admit, it does add drama to my lashes. Personally, I like the first position. It defines and lengthens my lashes very well.

Also, it doesn’t smudge or flake throughout the day which is a plus. Overall, it’s not the best drugstore mascara out there but definitely not a bad one either. It does the job for me – I am happy!

You might like it if…
  • You expect it to volumise your lashes
  • It defines and lengthens your lashes
  • It doesn’t smudge or flake through the day
You might not like it if…
  • You think it clumps your lashes together
  • The formula is a bit wet

  1. I totally love the brush however I don't think this would look too great on my lashes. I love slightly wet formulas, because after they dry a bit it usually works very well! It does look good on your lashes though!

  2. It does volumizes the lashes but bit clumps together, isn't! Beautiful review sara <3
